Pastel Painting Class November 2016

November Art Class: 
Pastel Painting: Landscape

Seacoast Artists Association
130 Water Street, Exeter, NH
(603) 778-8856    www.seacoastartist.org

This is a soft pastel painting class for those of you who have never tried this wonderful medium, and those of you who have tried it and would like a refresher course. This class will introduce you to pastels and you will see how quickly they go down on the surface, and how brilliant the effects are of these pure colors. Each class will start with some information on pastel painting including: how to make different marks: linear or side strokes; ways to blend colors on the paper; and underpainting techniques. Pastels are very versatile and it is easy to create simple or complex paintings. We will concentrate on landscape in this class and draw from photos.

What to bring: Sennilier Half-Stick Soft Pastels set of 40 (or more) assorted half-sticks, Prismacolor NuPastel set of 12, Colourfix Pastel Paper (cool tone pack 9” X 12”, or 10 sheets of white), vine charcoal (soft), painting board (to tape drawing paper to), paper towels or rags, paper stumps and an old stiff artist paintbrush (1" wide) for blending, Masking tape 3/4” wide. I have set up a Wish List on DickBlick.com with the recommended supplies, but you may substitute these with soft pastels of your choice. Once you send in your check to hold your spot, I will email you the link to this Wishlist. Do NOT buy “Oil” pastels by mistake. You may want to wear clothing you do not mind getting dirty. Class limited to 4.

Class starts: Monday, November 7th, 2016, and runs for 8 weeks, 1:00am to 3:00pm. Cost is $150.00.

To hold your spot please mail a check directly to: Revelle Taillon, 26 West Pine Street, Plaistow, NH 03865. Email me to receive a link to the Wishlist (with supplies needed) if you want to purchase supplies online at www.DickBlick.com. They have extremely good prices and awesome customer service.

Have you wondered where you go wrong when you attempt to draw a face or a portrait? In this class you will start with the basic skull, and work you way up to the planes of the face. You’ll practice them in portrait, profile, and 3/4 view.

Then on to each part of the face: eyes, nose, lips, ears, and hair. Anyone can learn to draw the human head with the tools I will teach you. Learn how the parts of the head reflect each other, and understand how to see faces in a brand new way.

Illustration Friday's theme to match is "Sparkle"

So I am using my "Charlie" in the silver sugar bowl for this challenge. This was created in colored pencil! I will be offering a new colored pencil class starting April 12, 2016 in Exeter NH at Seacoast Artist Association!

2016 is almost here!

It's been a while since I've posted, busy with teaching classes and getting ready for Christmas. My next 2 classes will combine beginners and intermediate students. "Colored Pencil for Beginners and Intermediate Students". I feel this will give the students who have taken my beginners classes, a chance to move forward with the security of still being a very new "intermediate" student. And those who are ready to move forward will receive more complex assignments and work with images that are more complex and a bit larger. And they will have a choice of 2 assignments, one less complex.

Same for my "Drawing the Human Head for Beginners and Intermediate Students". They will get to choose which of two assignments is more in their comfort level and feel secure that they can push themselves further with no fear and they can go back a step if they need to. I'll let you know how it works out!

We just had the first storm of the season yesterday, and it forced me to cancel 2 art classes, because of the icy streets. Hoping all other storms fall during the weekend!
